“If the president doesn’t have a strategy, maybe it’s time for a new president.”
You know who said that? U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., in remarks at a Dallas ballroom after speaking at an Americans for Progress meeting.
Pretty darn profound, don’t you think?
He’s talking about President Obama’s declaration that he doesn’t yet have a strategy to deal forcefully with ISIL, the hideous terrorist organization seeking to overrun governments in Syria and Iraq.
Paul has joined a number of other critics who’ve hit the president hard for not having such a strategy.
It’s the “maybe it’s time for a new president” comment that makes me chuckle.
Let’s see: We’re nearly halfway through Barack Obama’s second term as president. We’ll be getting a new president in January 2017, which is just around the corner.
The 22nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution forbids Obama from seeking a third term. So he’s out of the campaign game.
Yeah, it’ll be time for a new president … in due course.
